Experts Share How Your Eyebrows Age — and How to Keep Them Looking Youthful
Once you understand the anatomy of a healthy, youthful-looking brow, you’ll be able to adjust your shape accordingly. Much like the hair on our head, the hairs of our arches thin out over time. “A younger brow has a lower central brow (near your nose), the arch is lateral (at the edge of your pupil), and the tail is elevated. An older brow has less of an arch and tends to be straighter and less curved throughout,” explains NYC-based plastic surgeon Dr. Melissa Doft. In addition, women typically start to lose hair in the tail of their brow with age, so keeping them thick and dark helps hide any sparse spots.
